There’s one team Ohio has yet to face this season: Akron.
Ohio hasn’t seen Akron since it stomped all over Ohio at James A. Rhodes Arena in March 2021, but that will soon change when Ohio travels to Akron on Monday to make up a previously postponed game.
The Bobcats clawed their way back into Mid-American Conference Tournament contention by defeating Bowling Green 82-69 on Saturday. However, the Bobcats are going to have to defeat the Zips if they want to keep their seventh-place slot.
